NEBLSA 54th Regional Convention
Your safety is our #1 priority. Due to COVID-19 spikes and the surge in Omicron, we will be pushing back our 54th Regional Convention exactly one month. The NEBLSA Regional Convention will take place on the last weekend in February from February 23-27, 2022 at the Foxwoods Resort Casino! We are looking forward to closing Black History Month together. There will be powerful panel discussions, networking opportunities, community service initiatives, mixers, awards gala, and so much more. Join us as we celebrate 54 years of service and achievements in the black community!
Our Convention will remain in-person. We will be creating a #NEBLSABubble for our convention. For the first few days of our convention, the hotel will only be open for our convention. We hope that this will further protect and ensure your safety. Our Covid Policy is also changing. We will now also require a negative covid test from all attendees taken within 72 hours of the convention. In other words, regardless of your vaccination status, you must have a negative covid test in order to attend the convention.
All competitors are going to have an additional month to prepare. Competitions will now take place February 24-27, 2022.
Additionally, Hotel reservations for the former January date will be canceled and the hotel will send you new links to reserve a room for February!
